Ah, Beck. Where do we start? In my humble opinion the greatest musician of the decade, and in many fans' opinions OFITG is his finest;a return to the gentle form of Golden Feelings and A Western Harvest Field By Moonlight after the Star Wars Rawk-fest of Stereopathetic Soul Manure and the backwoods trailerpark acid folk of Mellow Gold. After the spectacular success of the 12" Loser and the infamous signing race which Geffen eventually won, Beck was under enormous pressure to release an album of Losers and MTV Makes Me Want To Smoke Crack. In response, he released this unpromoted, low-profile colection of gentle folk songs and acoustic blues he made with a few friends. The result? An album unique among Beck recordings as it concentrates on only one aspect of his genius; no screwball lyrics, no insane cutting, sampling and deadpan eclecticism; no bonus noise, even! Instead we get just 39 minutes of pure tunesmithery. These songs are just great. Must be heard. By everyone. Simple as that. The only possible complaint is the shortness of the album, running just under 40 minutes.

Please Please Please believe me when i say this is the most touching, mellow, heartfelt album i own. I have listened to this album over the yrs as much as i have listened to any other. Beck, as mentioned in some1 elses review, is the best musician on the 90's. He fused many genres into one and got the success deserved with his break through album Mellow Gold. I feel Beck touches my heart more than any other musician has or will do.

The music on this album is basic, simplistic and yet so perfect. I hate over-produced albums, if you do to and you like raw, accoustic music, then this is for you. Some songs don't include verses, Beck just throws out rhyme after rhyme of pure genious lyrics.

I would hazard a guess that 9.9 people would not like this album. Its an album for those music lovers that feel passion for heart felt lyrics, with accoustic music that is so original it just can't be replicated. I am trying to think of a band or musician to compare with and i find it very hard. This is BECK. Thanks Beck, your a genius and legend.

If you buy this album, have a few listens then smoke till you choke, get in bed and put the album on, not too loud. ENJOY

Beck's second album proper (The album in between Western Harvest Field by Moonlight and this was a compilation of tracks from '88 to '93)is a record to behold, it sound rough, it sounds campfire-esque, it sounds obscure, but most of all it sounds like Beck at his best. The standout track on the album is a song called "Asshole", it's a rollercoaster of a song, and when the chourus comes round ("She will do anything, She will do anything, She will do everything to make you feel like an asshole")is like the rollercoaster carriage winching itself up to the highest point, and then whooshing down with relieving freshness. I've listened to this album about twenty-five times, since I bought it at Christmas, and it's still one of the most beatiful albums of his career.

I guess this album's like marmite - you either love it or you hate it. Beck's so diverse that two people can say that they like him, yet when they talk about which tracks they really like they find out that the other person likes completely different stuff. Midnight Vultures and Odelay are great albums??????? Couldn't stand them. If you like Mellow Gold, Mutations, and some of the stuff on A western Harvest field by moonlight and Stereopathic Soulmanure then you might like this. If you like stuff like Howlin' wolf and Leadbelly you might also like this album. Personally I think that this is the most touching album I've ever heard, I can only describe the feeling after listening to it as being calmly, happily sad. You'll either absolutely fall in love with it, or you'll wonder what all the fuss is about. But to the other reviewers who have said "you can do better", you're so so so wrong.

I love Beck and have been a fan for years. These songs all pre-date Loser and are mainly quite naive. I liked the flashes of the man to come but not a classic selection.

The origins of the eclectic Beck Hansen were always steeped in blues, bluegrasss, country and hip-hop. This CD offers an insight into his country and blues roots, in parts coloured with a nihlistic, grunge carelessness, as well as his undeniable ear for the genre and attitude. There are insights into his future directions and work,
however, other than a couple of tracks (the stand-out being a lovely interpretation of the traditional song 'Hollow Log'), this album is strictly for devotees/ completists. Many of the recordings are rough and home-made which for some may offer a certain charm and sense of authenticity and for others invites thoughts of bedroom experiments (!) which when offered as product become self-indulgent. For this listener, interest is not sustained and i'd rather go to the original source material for authentic listening. Quality control counts.
